Made Over Purse Shaped Box with Drawers

I've been meaning to post pictures of this for awhile now and just keep forgetting!

Back in July, my Mom and I were at the AC Moore craft store in Charleston. We saw this little purse shaped box complete with pull out drawers. 
If you know me you know I adore purses and not just purses themselves, I collect purse shaped things like picture frames, nic nacs, etc. It looked pretty boring all plain and white. It had some scratches on it but it was on clearance for just three dollars. 

I knew it had potential, it just needed some love. So, with a bit of Mod Podge, some cute paper, and of course RIBBON I took this little box from
blah to oh la la!
Ah, much better now, don't you think?!? I think it's technically a jewelry box but it sits on my desk and holds rubber bands, staples, etc..

  1. Love it! I think it's a cute way to store basic office supplies. OH! Or in the bathroom for cotton balls etc

  4. I just saw this at the bottom of your current post on Cerebral Palsy. I clicked because I was curious, of course. This is TOO frickin' adorable! I love the choice of paper, and you sectioned it so well! It looks very cohesive. I like it as an office storage object better than a jewelry box, actually. Anyway....way awesome. :-)
